First published:

Patagonia gear lasts well so it is important to make sure you get the right size, especially when you are buying online from the Patagonia store.

Patagonia makes it very easy to choose the correct size, no matter if you are buying a jacket, hoody, shirt or shirts and pants.

In this article we’ve put together a summary of the guidance from Patagonia on both sizes and styles.

Garment dimensions are in inches unless otherwise noted.

Patagonia Fit Styles

They have four fit styles: Formfitting, Slim Fit, Regular Fit, Relaxed Fit

Here’s the summary direct from Patagonia about each of these styles

Formfitting:

“Conforms to the body’s contours.”

Slim Fit: 

“Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.”

Regular Fit:

“Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.”

Relaxed Fit:

“Drapes loosely on the body.”

How these dimensions are measured

Here’s the info from Patagonia on how to obtain these measurements correctly.

Sleeve

With elbow bent, measure from the center (back) of neck to elbow and down to wrist.

Chest/Bust

Measure around your chest/bust, just under armpit.

Waist

Measure around waist at the smallest circumference.

Hips

Stand, feet together, and measure around the largest circumference at hips.

Hands

Measure around the fullest part of the hand, not including thumb.

Inseam

Take a pair of pants that fit well and measure from the crotch to bottom of leg. All pants come with a finished hem.
